Monks bless water gathered from sacred sources for Thai king’s coronation

Thai monks conducted a ritual in temples across the country to bless water that was gathered from sacred sources to be used in King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s coronation ceremony in May.

The sacred water was gathered from ponds, wells, and reservoirs across Thailand and will be used for ablution of the king in the purification and anointment ceremonies on May 4, before the crowning ritual. The elaborate coronation for King Vajiralongkorn will take place over three days, from May 4 to 6, in the Thai capital of Bangkok with many Buddhist and Brahmin rituals performed in the month leading up to the event. The 66-year-old King Vajiralongkorn became Thailand’s constitutional monarch following the death of his father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, in 2016 following a 70-year reign.
